The Digital Bridge Project has made its public debut at the main campus of the University of Liberia. The Digital Bridge Project is aimed to bridge the digital divide in Liberian universities.
The laboratory includes 200 computers with access to a university Intranet, research database and a VSAT Internet connection. The project will help students to register for courses, get assessments and pay fees online. The aim of the multi-media PC laboratory at the University of Liberia is to partner with Liberia to accelerate its transition to a knowledge-based society in which the currency of exchange is information. According to Aloy Chife, CEO of SocketWorks, the distance learning capability is a key part of building the capacity of the University of Liberia, and is facilitated by WorldSpace.
